Post-doctoral fellowships

You are part of a new generation of promising young scholars with a passion for moving ahead of traditional education and who are also eager to enter the academic world to carry this education forward.

The purpose of the post-doctoral fellowship is to attract recently qualified researchers like yourself to the NWU to enable them to develop their own research skills as an introduction to a full-time academic career.  At the same time, the aim is to promote and stimulate research activities at the NWU.

At the NWU post-doctoral fellowships are awarded for an initial period of one year, renewable for a second and a third year.

To see if you qualify and to familiarise yourself with the application procedure, please read through the guidelines.
